Tesla applies to generate electricity in UK market

Tesla has applied to become an electricity supplier in the UK. Click here to read the full story.

Best known for its electric cars, Elon Musk's company also makes batteries that store renewable energy on both a domestic and an industrial scale. It has developed software, called Autobidder, that sells surplus electricity back to the grid.

It uses Autobidder at its Hornsdale Power Reserve, South Australia, but would not say if it planned to build similar large battery plants in the UK.

The application was lodged last Tuesday with the UK's Gas and Electricity Markets Authority, for a licence to generate electricity to supply "any premises" in Great Britain.

For more information about renting electric vehicles such as Teslas, or hybrid / low emission cars from Green Motion in the UK or from any of our 450+ car rental locations in 47 countries around the world, including Turkey, Austria, the US and Sweden, visit www.greenmotion.com.
